Patient Comments (2)

She may not have the Smoochy bedside manner that some seem to believe translates a doctor into "awesome & capable"; but, she KNOWS what shes doing!! I'll take experience and book smarts over "tell you what you want to hear" any day of the week!!

Dr. Wessman is a very skilled physician, and what makes her even more great is her willingness to actually listen to her patient, along with her caring compassionate way. A top notch professional who I would recommend highly! Her office staff is fantastic as well!
